We’ve all learned about the Battle of Waterloo in school, but this scale model of the famous challenge is definitely the way to learn about famous battles of history! This 20-year project is from Napoleon-enthusiast Albert Diks, now owner of Castell d’Emporda, a restored 14th century castle in Spain. Being fascinated by castles as a young boy, Diks and his wife came upon Castell d’Emporda in 1999 and set to restore it. In 2001 the castle was reopened as a hotel and Diks’ incredible scale model took a permanent place in the castle.
It’s now a popular attraction for guests and Diks is already in talks for his model to play a part in the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo in 2015.
This scale model uses 2,000 army soldiers, along with 500 horses, plus tiny, hand-painted battle equipment.
